FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
"... Tomboy stands out as an especially affecting delicacy about the thrills and pitfalls of exploring who one is." - Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times "... Ms. Sciamma edges around her characters attractively, catching their glances, gestures, light and heavy words as if on the fly and then gently harnessing them to her low-key realism." - Manohla Dargis, New York Times "Brisk, precisely observed, and bracingly non-preachy in its examination of a very tricky subject." - Jon Frosch, The Atlantic
